Do you think you might move on to Act 2 if the story grabs you?

Right now I have been reading Hardtack and Coffee and am in the process of writing my own book about a Civil War surgeon. Hopefully it will get accepted by one of the publishers I sent my manuscript to.

Just finished reading "playing for pizza"..A John Grisham's book..very unlike his other books as it is not about lawyer stuff which I like. Great book in my opinion as I'm a huge football fan. I'm also a JG fan..I started reading "the brethren"...so far so good.. great concept for this website too..

I admire those that can read mulitple books at one time. I stuggle focusing on one at time.

Just finished J-Pod by Douglas Copeland the other day. Not sure what's next. Probably the Theory of Poker again.

The Surrogates - for the third or fourth time. I can hardly wait until next year when the movie comes out. :dr Also reading a proof copy of what was originally titled 'Homeland'. Both graphic novels written by Rob Venditti. :tu

Did I mention that Rob is my nephew?

I'll be reading whether it grabs me or not. It has grabbed me btw, the first time I read it. (long ago)




Right now I am reading poems from Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein.:tu

In the book I am reading about an Italian soldier in WWI it is mentioned that Hannibal swam his elephants to Spain-is this true?

Just finished Crichton's State Of Fear. I really liked it.

I'm in between books right now, although I'm looking to pick up Chuck Paliunik's Choke before the movie comes out.

I read one of his books-haunted, I think, about the writers locked up in an old theatre. It was twisted. Are all his books like that?

No, most historians believe he crossed them in specially constructed rafts. There are a lot of theories on the subject, but most agree with some form of boat. Although there are a fair amount of folks who think the elephant part of the story is myth. No elephant remains have ever been found in the alps.
